How to Keep  Garland Fresh

Decorating with fresh garland brings the scent of Christmas to your home. But it can dry quickly before the holiday is over. This can leave a mess and become a fire hazard.  I'm going to show you my simple tip for keeping your garland fresher longer for more Christmas enjoyment.
